What are you allergic to?

I wonder what allergies are the most common and how bad you are suffering with them.

  • Pollen, specifically goldenrod and mimosa.
    Mold and Mildew
    rub on temp tattoos and Henna
    So far, Gain, Tide, and Shout detergents (have not tried others) only one so far that works is arm and hammar.
    Cig smoke (asthma)
    Marijuana (don't ask how I found that one out....)
    Alcohol, the drinking kind.
    Certain Lotions and soaps
    Deet bug sprays
    Zantac, pepcid, an Ceclor, wellbutrin XL, and Pennicillin(meds)
    Specific types of grass (skin irritation). WE've not pinpointed all.
    Bees, wasps, yellow jackets and hornets and ants (been stung/bit by one of each and must carry an epipen)
    And thats all I can think of at the moment...sad, I know.

  • I have seasonal allergies to ragweed. So about twice a year I am miserable for a while. I am glad I dont have a year round problem like one of my kids. He's allergic to cats & mold & has to take allergy medicine pretty much year round. The only other things are blackberries & Tide detergent (break out in hives) but those things are easily avoided.

  • I'm allergic to grasses, mold, feathers, beer (the hops!), and Ibuprofen. I took allergy shots and that helped a lot. I still take Zyrtec almost every day.

  • I have seasonal allergies that I think are mostly tree pollen. I've also had contact dermatitis from a few cosmetics, including something common in perfumes, but I just don't buy them.

  • I tested positive to trees, grass and ragweed but I only react to grass.

  • Strawberries, Raspberries, Blackberries - any fresh, cooked, and even artificial flavors - the acids in them get to me.
    Fresh tomatoes.....I can eat cooked tomatoes.

  • Bermuda grass, cardboard, and most recently.... my dog. If I pet him for longer than a minute I brake out in hives :-(
